Today is the first day of Spring. I love it!
Once again, it is a time for re-evaluation. I think I like to re-evaluate more than I like to work.
Oh well, realizing that is part of the process!
It’s a good thing I write (to you, to my journal, to my studio clip-board) so that I can keep some semblance of continuity to my moods and work cycles. Those work cycles not only ebb and flow throughout the day and the week, but by the month and year. We are having an early spring here, and it is definitely making me feel lighter and more free. I have big ideas, and a big art project I have been “thinking about” for the past 4 months - and this week has moved that project out of my head and into reality! I’m building something huge - literally - and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Over the winter, I became obsessed with the “business” of my art life (new website, blog, business cards, etc). Then it came to a point where I realized I really just want to create artwork: play with colors and lines, explore new ideas and media. I’ve been spending more time in the studio than at the computer, hanging out with the family, and entering juried art shows while applying for art scholarships. In the meantime, the wisteria has bloomed, and I do believe that a wisteria bloom is one of the most perfect things on this earth.
Have I mentioned that I love to create?
Spring has sprung. Tell me, how do you keep business work from taking over your creative time? What new ideas, sources of inspiration, and creative ideas do you have in your head you would like to share? What is it that you love to create?
Happy end-of-the-year holidays, y’all!
It’s been an exciting and art-filled year since I posted my first blog post last January 1st. At that time I invited you all to share my explorations and discoveries with me. It’s been fun, and I find that you inspire me, challenge me, encourage me and reward me - greatly. Thanks!
For all of you who helped me work through the preparations for the holiday Athens Artist Market at Hotel Indigo in Athens, it was a grand success, and a fabulous learning opportunity. Once again, I faced what I hesitated to take on - and succeeded!
Best wishes to you and yours for a happy and creative New Year!!
